We all have times in our lives when we find ourselves facing a crisis, a difficult choice, or a life-changing event. From educator and psychotherapist Terri Spahr Nelson comes a remarkable anthology, When One Door Closes: Reflections from Women on Life's Turning Points, which offers the personal stories of fifty-three women from diverse backgrounds describing crucial decisions or profound shifts in perspective that changed them or their course in life. This book reveals the scope of women's lives as heard through the voices of those who have dealt with issues common to most-love, relationships, marriage, divorce, parenting, career choices, illness, grief, and loss. When One Door Closes brings forth touching accounts that offer readers an opportunity to make a connection, engage in reflection, and find encouragement on their own journeys and to discover that even in the most difficult of circumstances, compassion, hope, forgiveness, or peace can be found.
